Just got an email from my Mom. I have a Great Uncle who designed some way to refine oil in his younger years...you know the flame you see when you drive by a refinery? Well, I think he's the dude that designed that. Well, at any rate, the guy never married, has no kids. He is 77 or so, and asked my Mom about her son in Colorado who fly fishes. Turns out he has all this fly gear he is going to give me, including a fly rod building kit, a Penn International 1.5 Reel, and other stuff....I honestly have no idea what he is going to send out. I am the only person he knows who fly fishes....so I get it all.
My question is - anyone know about Penn Fly Reels? I know they haven't made them since 2002, and google only provided some sporadic information.....he used it for inshore salt - 6 to 8 weight, and it looks brand new......any advice/opinions?
Here's a pic the guy sent me:
Lord let me die, but not die......out
